Pelosi Wants Send You to Prison for Showing Off Your Gun to a Neighbor

USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Nancy Pelosi and her anti-gun team are either profoundly stupid or genuinely evil.

Although either answer is arguably correct, the latter most likely explains H.R. 8 — a bill that is scheduled for a hearing this week in the House Judiciary Committee.

With H.R. 8, Pelosi and her gun-hating cronies have crafted a “Universal Background Check” bill with dozens of trap doors that could, if enforced to the letter, put millions of gun owners in prison.

Specifically, the bill outlaws the “transfer” of a firearm without a Brady Check. While this includes private sales, it by no means is limited to that.

The term “transfer” is nowhere defined, but it’s clear from the bill that handing your gun to a neighbor for as little as one second is a “transfer” unless you’re covered by one of the bill’s so-called exceptions.

So if you show off your new gun to your neighbor in your living room, and hand it to him to look at, you’re a criminal, and can go to prison for up to a year under federal level.

But as onerous as this provision is, the worst part consists of the Universal Gun Registry the bill would create.

Under H.R. 8, since every gun transfer will go through a dealer, every gun owner will have a 4473.

We know that the ATF, in connection with annual inspections conducted under federal law, is increasingly copying these forms to its database in a centrally accessible format. See examples here.

So here’s the problem: if everyone has a 4473, everyone is potentially in the database.

Even the Obama Administration recognized this in 2013, when a leaked memo from the Justice Department revealed its assessment of Universal Background Checks:

Effectiveness depends on the ability to reduce straw purchasing, requiring gun registration …. (Emphasis added.)

Regardless, gun grabbers today are trying to put a new spin on Universal Registration Checks. They claim that section 5(1) in the bill prohibits registration.

The problem is that the Firearm Owners Protection Act of 1986 CURRENTLY prohibits a national gun registry. And yet, the ATF is not interpreting that prohibition from preventing it from doing what it’s already doing.

So if the current prohibition isn’t effective, why would anyone suppose that putting it in the law a second time would make any difference?

Are we putting the ATF on double super-secret probation?

As I mentioned above, the House is now pushing this bill to the forefront.

So please send your Representative a pre-written letter OPPOSING H.R. 8.

If you call your Representative — and want additional talking points — you can go here to see GOA’s Fact Sheet on H.R. 8.

Thank you.

    As usual, a brain-dead woman whom is trying to “rule” our country, is just assuming that her “office” in the House gives her more “power” to ursurp the POTUS. Perhaps her Doctors ignore the infated ego, the incredible alcholisim, but it’s painfully obvious to me. I gave 4 years to MY COUNTRY during the Vietnam War years, rated as 4F by the Army. Our USAF took me, schooled me in radio. I’ve held an Honorable Discharge for 50 years, and sadly noted that Pelosi has NO brags about OUR country. To her & the anti-gun followers, “Take my guns out… Read more »

    It would seem that our choices of States to live in could soon depend on our beliefs of what means we will have to defend those Freedoms. I’m still amazed at the number of citizens who do Not believe that our Government would declare war on it’s own citizens! I have read several statements by people that have moved, changed their State, due to the infringement by local governments. Could we see a larger migration of people according to their views on Liberty and Freedom? Let the Great Shuffle Begin !!

    Obviously, the likes of Pelosi et al. is trying to tell us something. No walls, so terrorist could freely come in and slaughter Americans. Disarm Americans, so we can die anytime they wish. And yet nobody amongst us dare say that they are guilty of Treason.

    My friend, Barry Schmidt, DDS, expresses clearly what I felt last year, when, at age 81, I sold my CA home, divested my CA investments and moved to rural TX. My TX CHL is being processed now that I have completed the 6 months residency requirement and taken the required coursework. Gas this a.m. was $1.89, over a dollar cheaper than CA. Texas has no state income tax and home prices are about 1/2 of CA prices. It took me a while to let go of CA, but in the end I had no choice and am glad I left… Read more »

    ” Nancy Pelosi and her anti-gun team are either profoundly stupid or genuinely evil.” I have news for you Nancy. Try to confiscate muy target rifles, and you will have to pry them from my cold, dead hands. I am so fed up with your horse sh*t and am so old and feeble, that I don’t really care any longer what your anti-gun views are. As far as I am concerned, you can go to hell, and take Schumer with you!

    I will goddam well show anything to my neighbor that I wish, and try to stop me!

    See what happens to those who partake in ADRENOCHROME ? Their brains become addled, and if they are in positions of authority, the power goes to their heads and they start writing all sorts of silly laws. They just can’t get enough of telling other people what to do. Remember that blooming idiot Bloomberg, the Bolshevik Capo from NY ?

    The problem is, in places like kalifornistan, most gunowners are such cucked pussies that they promote registration by being afraid to do face to face transfers and insisting on transfering at gun stores. It’s getting to the point where your “fellow” gunowners are treating you like a criminal if you suggest a constitutional cash exchange transaction. Even for guns that are 30, 40, 50 years old and have never been papered………even buyers in commie states (are largely PUSSIES) want to insist on a dealer transfer. (Thereby bringing a never papered gun forward into the modern computer registration system). Sooooooo I… Read more »

    This article alludes “So if you show off your new gun to your neighbor in your living room, and hand it to him to look at, you’re a criminal, and can go to prison for up to a year under federal level.” HR 8, as the article correctly suggests has exceptions. One exception is as follows: “Sec 3, (2)(F), a temporary transfer if the transferor has no reason to believe that the transferee will use or intends to use the firearm in a crime or is prohibited from possession firearms under State or Federal law, and the transfer takes place… Read more »

    You’re welcome sir. Law abiding firearm owners no doubt, and rightfully so, have genuine concerns relative to public servants (elected and unelected) overstepping their respective constituency representation. Bills filed in State Houses, or the federal congress gives rise for such concerns, and as we recently seen, unelected Executive public servants changing definitions of weapons at their whim, previously defined by the Legislature, i.e., Bumpstocks. A quick look at some egregious bills a being introduced, (i.e. no more than five round magazines, or maximum purchase of 20 rounds of ammo within a 120 day period, or red flag laws such as… Read more »

    A link to this article purports to convey that ATF auditors are illegally seizing an FFL dealers transfer book information or 4473 themselves by digitally recording same during audits. The article sites as its authority in claiming these instances as illegal is 18 USC 923 (g)(1)(D). 923 does discuss perimeters which auditors may proceed upon and barred from proceeding under certain factual circumstances. The article appears misleading in that, the legal citation of the criminal code herein pertains to “licensed collector”, which is defined as “The term “collector” means any person who acquires, holds, or disposes of firearms as curios… Read more »

    I was an FFL dealer and my auditor was an out of control pyscopath who took photos of almost every single 4473 I had. She spent 14 hours copying them and even the other agent was wanting to leave and go home to see his wife… his wife kept calling past 5 pm wondering when he was getting home. She acted in the most unprofessional and crazy possible dealing with me and my employees. Not sure when your last audit was, the old professional guys are disappearing and the young Obama hires are nightmares.

    Have any of you ever heard of ADRENOCHROME ? There are many of these elite rich politicians around the world and in the USA who get regular infusions by PARABIOSIS. One company named AMBROSIA charges about $8,000 for a liter of blood. That is perfectly legal if it is donated blood and the donor was paid. But, millions of children go missing worldwide every year. They are tortured and sexually stimulated so that certain hormones are released into the blood, and then the blood is drained from them. Many of the elite who partake of this practice can eventually get… Read more »

    Don’t worry, Trump has a Military Tribunal all set up for her treasonous arse. The video and transcript will be coming out at a later date, when the public is able to “handle the truth”, as good old Jack would say. In the meantime, the act of normalcy will continue, and dopplegangers will be employed when necessary to prop up the scenes. However, I am worried about Trump and Barr, who have both uttered statements unfriendly to the 2A. He has not ruled out martial law, and seems to think that torture “does work”.

    With all the problems facing America, crazy Pelosi only cares about disarming law abiding citizens. The gun banning cults put out “news articles” that say criminals go into gun shops and purchase. 200 or 309 guns at a time. Do they ever realize how much money that would be? And why are these power crazed politicians trying to regulate private property? Dp they really think this will stop crime, street gangs or drug dealers?

    Pelosi, along with all politicians, including the traitorous GOP, plan to disarm citizens because it is their agenda – look at all the other regimes that have disarmed the citizens and you find socialism/communism. THAT is their agenda, pure and simple. It has NOTHING to do with preventing crimes. An armed citizenry will defend/prevent a free country. It is obvious after the last mid-term election the goals of the communist party, ie, democRATS = socialism, which is just one step away from communism.
    They do not care about any other issue – they seek power, absolute power in this country.

    I agree, and unfortunately the Pro-gun organizations/groups do not openly address this. Whether it is due to an attempt to prevent ailienation of the ‘average joe’ or because they don’t see that reality, it is not postulated in journalism that I am seeing.

    Ask yourself, why are they so interested in promoting control and restrictions on freedom, especially when there is substantial evidence that contradict’s their reasoning for these restrictions as a methodology for preventing violence and making everyone safe from harm.

    IMOA Universal Background Checks are another knee-jerk gun control scheme to disarm law abiding citizens. Criminals aren’t going to do a UBC to get a firearm and the anti-gunners already know that. All the UBC will do is trap and then disarm law abiding citizens.

    This women is inherently evil. Whether by design or stupidity.
    Why the Dimwitokratz are making such a deal out of any gun issue is beyond reason. No one gives a crap about guns in general. 3% of the people polled see guns as an issue. All any of these proposals do is possibly make criminals of honest citizens. None stop a primal one bit.

    Wrong. The reason is perfectly obvious – an armed citizenry can prevent corrupt politicians/government from throwing us into slavery in the form of socialism/communism. This is their agenda pure and simple. Take away our guns so they can usher in totalitarianism.
